Common Car Problems To Look Out For In The New Year.

Common Car Problems To Look Out For In The New Year.

Many of us don't like to think about it, but as the new year quickly approaches, there's one thing on many people's minds: car problems!  Like everyone else, you may also be wondering what issues to expect with your car over the next few months. This is why I've put together this list of common car problems to look out for during the first of the new year and beyond. 

Check & Refresh Your Filters & Sensors

Filters. Sensors. They are two things that are often forgotten about and pushed off to the side. If you wait too long, you’ll end up paying more in the long run than getting that filter replaced or sensor reset. 

Air Up Your Tires

It’s cold outside and the last thing you want to do is get out of your car with ice and snow on the ground. We get it - simply stop by your favorite trusted mechanic and they’ll take care of you and get you all full of fresh air. 

Repair That Small Crack In Your Windshield Before It Expands

They start out small and innocent. Next thing you know, you have a crack larger than life across your windshield. Especially during the winter months when you have the internal heater working overtime on your windshield, make sure that you treat any minor cracks before they become a bigger problem. Remember, it’s cheaper to repair a chip rather than replace the whole windshield! 

Don’t Skip That Oil Change

With millions still driving less and still working from home, many think that it is acceptable to push aside your next oil change. We caution you on doing this, for the sake of your daily driver! 

While it is best not to skip your regular tune-up, it is good to be aware of some common issues that might crop up in the colder seasons. Having a working knowledge of each makes it easy to plan ahead and keep your car running throughout next winter. By staying prepared and asking your mechanic about preventative measures you can take, you will be able to save yourself some pricey repairs before they even arise.
